In 1990, Trygg Engen was honored with a Ph.D. (Honoris Cause) at Stockholm University. Since the 1960’s, he was the world known olfactory researcher in psychology of his time, stationed at Brown University in the USA. Born Norwegian, he liked to visit Scandinavia and spent several sabbatical leaves at the Department of Psychology at Stockholm University, two of these as Fullbright Fellow. In all, 17 papers in scientific journals were published in cooperation along themes of ’the Stockholm School’ as Engen labeled the research environment originally created by Gösta Ekman during the 1950’s and 1960’s. In 1965, our joint research started in olfactory psychophysics and human odour perception, but expanded into multidimensional scaling and further into problems of measurement in psychophysics and applications in environmental psychology, especially indoor air environments.
